BBC News - Hawaiian singer charms Germany

Friday, November 19, 2010 12:05:37 PM Pacific/Honolulu Great article on the success of IZ in Germany and soon to be expanding to all of Europe. 

Wolfgang Boss of B1 Recordings in Germany puts why people are relating to IZ perfectly. "The reason why this song is so amazingly successful is that it's so much stronger than most of the music that gets released. It's like a classic masterpiece." 

Needless to say we are ecstatic and thankful IZ's message and voice is spreading around the world.

The newspaper Welt am Sonntag ("World on Sunday") is a German national Sunday newspaper -- Check out the feature they did on Israel 'IZ' Kamakawiwo`'s in German of course.

The buzz is all about IZ rocking the charts at #1 in the German TOP 100 Singles for his rendition of "OVER the RAINBOW" for 3 consecutive weeks now.  His album "FACING FUTURE" is #11 on the German TOP 100 Albums chart as well! Can't believe this local boy is still making waves around the world 13 years after his passing.

He is truly a Hawaiian Sup'pa Man.

Live performance footage of IZ

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 12:00:54 PM Pacific/Honolulu

Recently we were going through tapes we have from the early to mid 90′s. One of the more interesting finds was this video Jon de Mello created for IZ’s iconic song “E Ala E“. This video contains the only Live Performance footage de mello has of IZ performing. He  was playing at the Waikiki Shell and de Mello went into the pit with a HI-8 video camera and filmed IZ perform this song. He created this video in 1995 when Israel was still alive and it has never before been seen until now.
